About Nick Haddow and Bruny Island Cheese Company
Nick Haddow is the founder of Bruny Island Cheese Company on Bruny Island, Tasmania. He moved to Tasmania in 2001, first to work at the internationally renowned Pyengana Dairy, before moving on to his own business in 2003. He has a long background in hospitality and food: his cheese mentors include Will Studd and Richard Thomas (two of the biggest names in Australia); he won a Queen’s Trust Grant to work with cheese makers in Europe; scored a gig with Randolph Hodgson at Neal’s Yard Dairy in London; and returned to work alongside Studd and Stephanie Alexander in setting up Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder – at the time considered the best cheese retailer in Australia.
